A few people have emailed about the rumor I posted earlier this week, that two Boston priests would be resigning their positions because of relationships with women.
At least one person questioned the veracity since they hadn’t seen any newspaper articles about it. While it seems that the local newspapers revel in every piece of bad news that comes out of the archdiocese, they don’t actually print every single thing, at least not as it happens. So don’t expect this to necessarily end up in the newspaper.
Also these are not vague rumors. I have been given specific names and circumstances and one of them announced his resignation from the pulpit this past Sunday. I haven’t posted their names because there has been no official announcement and thus there might be legal ramifications if I did so.
But if you know priests or Church employees in Boston, you can certainly find out if you want.
